and served in the illinois state senate with president obama. let me get to you to respond to what you heard from chris van holland, especially on the issue of taxes. did i think there is ambiguity on the democratic side on the aisle and i think there is something chris did not say and we have not heard from the president. it is, who is rich? there is the 250,000 of description, the $500 .escription and many people across both sides of the aisle represent entities organized as passthroughs. very little discussion beyond the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact on passthroughs as it relates to higher rates. did you notice really what we have not heard from the white house? a discussion on the other component that is where are the spending cuts? the discussion about that. there has not been any discussion since the election about where the cuts are. remember, the president described a balanced approach as a 1-3 revenue to cut ratio. we have been having the conversation on the revenue side. i think house republicans are here ready to be a part of the discussion and part of the solution. we are

of course the united states confronts prodigious challenges of its own, even as president obama must replace many of the league officials who have been responsible for the formulation of u.s.-china policy during his first term. so the question, it seems to me, as some of them are quite obvious but it's important to save some of them at the outset. should we anticipate continuity or discontinuity in the bilateral relationship? how would both leadership seek to protect and advance their interests? will this reinforce or undermine the capacity and incentives of both leaderships to cooperate on pressing international issues? and what of course are the potential consequences if there is increased stress in an additional fault lines introduced into the bilateral relationship? and last, what should we be looking for and anticipating in the weeks and months ahead? i'm joined this win by three of my colleagues from the john l. thorne china sent to come and buy two distinguished experts from other institutions here in washington. who will respond to the presentations by the panelists, and then moderat

question about you asked burma and the united states and president obama's embrace of their reform efforts and support for it. in no other way that you can imagine is an entry by burma into the international community and what opportunity that it provides economically. that is an important focus of the burmese leadership. the economic prospects and promises of their coming into the international community and supported by the u.s. that is a path that if the north koreans would address the nuclear issue that would be available to them. we have said that from the outset. it is an important example for them to contemplate. it is a regime that continues to be isolated -- a regime that is a complete outlier. it is failing its people economically. there is another path. that example is an important one -- of a country totally isolated for many years, under extreme sanctions from the u.s., making a determination to go a different way. what the positive aspects are for their people and country are manifest and will be very clearly underscored by the president's visit. it is an important example fo

this morning. it's the first visit ever by a united states president to cambodia. coming up for you at 8:15, why a meeting between president obama and the cambodian prime minister was a bit tense. >>> it is 8:04. top oakland police officials are the targets of some sharp criticism it's coming from the department's own police union. the oakland tribune reports the police union filed a harsh critique in court. it accuses department leaders of misleading the public about implementing court-ordered reforms stemming from the 2003 ryders case. this all comes as the department faces a federal takeover. on december 13th, a judge will hear arguments on whether to appoint a federal receiver. >>> while the ross mirkarimi case is still fresh on many friends, an event is promoting an end to violence againstwomen. the sheriff and his family have been invited to the annual mission district healing arts festival. organizers say the event gives men and women who have endured violence a space to heal. mirkarimi is on probation after pleading guilty in march to a misdemeanor false imprisonment for a new ye

and the state department. the white house saying well, you know, requests about diplomatic security don't really go through us. that's more through the state department. and then there was tension there and then when obama was asked about it, you know, do you stand with secretary clinton you know yeah the buck stops with me. every time you go into the details it always goes that would have been handled by the intelligence community. that's under investigation. it never -- exactly. >> bill: it's all under investigation. but here is -- i'm saying this with all due respect how big a fraud this is. if i'm in the washington press corps you know this press conference is a lot different than that because i basically say, mr. president, i'm a simple man, you know, i always start it with that to be humble. when did you know about -- president, when did you know about cia cia director petraeus' situation. what day? what hour did you know? if he dose it's under investigation i can't tell you. i go oh phooey phooey. that doesn't impede on any investigation. it's a question between bill and barack? when did
. barack obama held his first post election press conference despite the fact that they are still counting votes in ohio. seems pretty presumptuous. he went after susan rice. some were trying to block her as secretary of state. >> senator mccain and graham and others want to go after to somebody, they should go after me. for them to go after the u.n ambassador who has nothing to do with ben gay you swree -- benghazi and was making a presentation based on information she had received, the smirk-sherm reputation is outrageous. >> phony outrage. mccain, graham and others do what they say is spreading the white house message and it was not terrorism. and mccain addressed obama's remarks saying he understood the president was not happy with him, but -- >> this president -- this administration has been guilty of caw loss sal incompetence or engaged in a cover up. >> meanwhile, earlier mccain was asked if there is a security threat that exceeded that of the libya attack. >> i say with great respect that is one of the dumbest questions i have ever heard. >> thank god he said it with great respect.
and on "meet the press," a top republican suggests for the first time that president obama may have known about the petraeus affair long before the election. >> i'm not sure the president hasn't -- was not told before election day. the attorney general said that the state -- excuse me, the department of justice did not notify the president. but we don't know if the attorney general -- >> that's new. that's news. the president knew before election day? >> i didn't say that. i said i don't know. >> and governor chris christie brings some jersey attitude to weekend update. >> i do not thank any of the stupid mayors who ignored my evacuation orders, you're idiots! and when you ignore me, it makes you look like a real seth meyers. >> oh come on. >> i'm talking here. >> all right. >> i also do not want to thank the reporters that put themselves in danger. you know, by walking into the middle of the hurricane with their cameras. we don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane. we have windows. >> message delivered. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no cease-fire and at least 30,000 is

news from washington that 100 republican house members sent a letter to president obama asking him not to nominate ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state writing in part that she is widely viewed as having willfully or incompetently mislead the public weather benghazi matter. we believe making her the face of foreign policy would greatly undermine your desire to improve the trust of the american people. this is after democratic congress women came out to show their support. >> to batter this woman because they don't feel they have the ability to batter president obama is not something we are going to stand by and watch. we'll not allow a brilliant public servant's record to be mugged, to cut off her consideration to become secretary of state. megyn: here now is the woman you saw moments ago. he will more holmes norton. she is a dell what the representing washington, d.c. thank you for being here. your thoughts. you didn't really touch on the race or gender issue but the other women who were there said this is clear sexism and racism. do you agree wit
. she had two jobs. she ran women's vote for emily's list and battleground state media for the obama campaign. we'll hear from her not only how we turned out women for emily's list candidates and president's democratic priorities. next to her is dawn who is the vice president of ppfa, planned parenthood federation of america action fund. she brings decades of experience in campaign strategy and messaging to planned parenthood and cleo award winning writer and director as well. last but not least is laura race. secretary treasure of afscme which represents 1.6 million workers. she was elected at the union's 40th international convention in june. welcome to all of you. thank you so much for being here. i will start with you, stephanie. we just heard a lot about where we are. this feels a lot like you're the woman 2.0. the first year the woman, 20 years ago, 1992, when going into that election cycle there were exactly two women in the united states senate and 24 in the house. we made great progress. how do we keep it going? first is this the year of the woman 2.0 and how do we keep it g
to these questions. >> i think you picked up quite rightly the question of the degree to which the united states wants to lead it was seen as a subset of fact, wants to spend the resources that it takes to lead. so you hear this doubt and president obama's own words each time he was gone to give a major speech on afghanistan, the west point speech on the command of the company pulled tight again during presidential debates. he kept saying it's time for nationbuilding at home. what was that tapping into? that was tapping into an emotion you hear the electorate can see in the polls. i'm not saying it's a good thing or bad thing, but americans feel as if we are overinvested abroad. then you look at events to which we feel we are the in the united states, that things are out of control, there isn't enough american power and you have become that much to that, which as any to stay invested as we were in that golden. you just describe between 89 and 99, which is a great unipolar moment. the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is that coming back again. you have to pick your fi
than obama doing anything. mr. obama won the woman vote. blacks and asians but waits the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of la teen yoz voted for the president. that is the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, nevada. other states as well. romney took white males and independents by a significant margin but when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year, american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35. it was clear left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending on federal programs did. that is the key. because many in the media would have us believe liberal ideology was confirm bid this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power, those americans attend religious services voted for romney 59%39%. problem is church going is on the decline. here is an example. despite controversial insis stens some catholic entities provide birth control and after pillses, but only 30% of american catholics now attend weekly mass. you can see impact of creeping sec
obama will be on the ground in new york city today to get a first-hand look at all of the devastation left by super storm sandy. this as a state attorney general in new york launched an investigation. it has two major power utilities over their handling of power outages. it is freezing. we are live at oceanside new york with details. >> good morning to you. good morning everyone. we are standing outside of an outreach center that the power authority where customers can come to get answers. believe it or not there are people in long eye p land without power even as we speak. he sent subpoenas also sent a subpoena to the long island power authority. his investigation is looking at how well prepared the utilities were but how they responded. whether they broke any state laws by failing to provide a power supply for rapairs. they have been frustrated with how long it has taken to turn the power back on. >> this is a nightmare. they have us at their mercy. >> and spokesman for both lipa and con edison say those utilities plan to cooperate with the attorney general's subpoena. that is the l
. >> it's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. obama care is the law of the land. >> it's happening it, and there's nothing they can do about it. right now, states are deciding how to implement a key part of the law. states can either set up exchanges for people to buy insurance or let the federal government do it for them. you think that choice would be easy for republican governors, given how much they hate the federal government. >> we don't like when the federal government comes and shoves things down our throat. >> sadly, the hardest part of my job continues to be this federal government. >> i mean all the states are actually under assault by this federal government. they are under assault by this federal government. >> so dwhae these governors decide? rick perry and his buddies are letting the feds set up their exchanges. they don't want the federal government to have any control over health care. so now they're letting the federal government have more control over health care. these republican politicians have tied themselves into knots trying to deal with the law
students. let's solve this. >>> in the spotlight tonight president obama is not going to let republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham stop him from nominating whoever he thinks is the best candidate to be his next secretary of state. >>> if you nominate susan rice, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, th
think at the central plank of this, is ambassador rice at fault or as barack obama said today, she was merely passing on intelligence and not a key player in all of this, and tlf, if he -- therefore if he wants to make her secretary of state, he can do it. >> well, i was substituting for george stephanopoulos and all of the shows were trying to get hillary clinton to talk about benghazi, but for whatever reason she did not come out, and he put out susan rice. it is interesting that the president said she had nothing to do with benghazi, then why was she on the show? >> didn't she make herself a key player or the person put up by the administration to launch the defense, and she would have said, look, we believe there are a number of possible theories, and that may have been a get-out, but she didn't do it. >> she was a good soldier and did what the administration told her to do and read the talking points. >> did she act in good faith do you believe? >> i can't get inside of her brain, but i believe she was repeating the intelligence and what the white house told her to say, becaus
's an understanding of government that to me renders him unfit to be the leader of the united states government. if that's really what he thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what h
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
to block the nomination. >> president obama is strongly defending rice. the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. he says he has not yet determined whether he will nominate her for secretary of state. >>> the military has suspended the security clearance for the woman at the center of the petreaus scandal. paula broadwell is a former army intelligence officer who had high clearance. meantime, cbs news has learned the identity of of the fbi agent who first brought the case to the bureau. frederick humphries is a friend of jill kelley, who went to him when she started getting harassing e-mails from paula broadwell. >>> 5:39 now. summer storm sandy drove the number of people seeking unemployment benefits up to 439,000 last week. that's the highest level in 18 months due to superstorm sandy. today president obama is going to new york city to see the devastation firsthand from the storm. the president will tour the city's hardest hit borough of staten island. the president toured new jersey shortly after sandy hit but the mayor, mayor bloomberg, asked the president to stay away from new york
be confirmed of secretary of state if nominated by the approximate president? >> i don't know. i'm deferential to the president's picks. i voted for kagan and sotomayor. senator obama voted gaps john bolton, alito and john roberts. he had a very high bar for confirmation. i have a very low bar. i'm going to listen to what susan rice has to say, put her entire record in context. but i'm not going to give her a plus for passing on a narrative that was misleading to the american people, and whether she knew it was misleading or not. >> you won't filibuster her appointment? >> i'm going to wait to see what the state department has to say, but i'm very disappointed in susan rice, somebody who knew nothing about benghazi, telling a story that was disconnected from reality that did make the president look good at a time when quite frankly the narrative should have been challenged, not reinforced, that al qaeda was dismantled. that's what they wanted us to believe, that al qaeda was dismantled, and benghazi was exhibit a that that storyline was not working and was untrue. >> let me turn to the issue o
not by the opponent but by the super pac. we had $100 million spent by the president in nine states, $100 million on the air which is more than what mccain spent in its entirety. >> i think house races had an impact because barack obama, sherrod brown, governors, they had some definition. so that outside spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with. but if you're not known it's going to be an imact about this. there's a term about politics which is the amount of television you buy. it means the average viewer sees the ad 10 times. in this election the republicans super pacs were at 9,000 or 10,000 points. i spent a lot of nights in hotel rooms there. and you turn on to tell vision. it was wall to wall political act and in many of those markets you see two or three ads. there is strong differences on this but we had one individual, one spend 100 million on the presidential direction. one person will try. there will be soul searching on the republican side. it had all this money. i don't think it's going away. but this is a big question in 2016, the democrats and republicans w
kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops and sunshine. congratulation on 8,760 hours in that seat and good luck on the next 8,760 hours. >> tha
susan rice forward to be secretary of state. megyn: he said if i want to nominate her, i will. president obama scheduled to meet with business leaders. busy day at the white house, to talk about budget cuts and tax hikes. it's part of his plan to help avoid the fiscal cliff. but we got reports on two different studies, one by ernst and young and the conscious at budget office that predicted raising tax rates even on the wealthy will hurt the economy. charles payne and simon constable. author of the the "wall street journal" guide to the 50 economic indicators that matter. charlesing with who put that together, a bunch of rich people who don't want to get taxed? >> realistically. i think the question is, a lot of people will resign themselves to the fact that taxes will go up. but the question is how do you define rich. this is where i have a problem. $250,000 is not real definition of rich and that's not where the average american family who gets to that point should be punished for the work they put in. the president continues to dismiss small businesses saying only 3% are going to be h
in a constant state of whiplash all the time. >>> this morning on "world news now" -- president obama talking tough in defense of his u.n. ambassador and in advance of important economic talks with congress. >> mr. obama also commenting for the first time on the firestorm around his former cia chief. it is thursday, november 15th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> well, that hour-long news conference at the white house yesterday had a little bit of everything on plenty of hot button topics. good morning, everybody on this thursday. i'm rob nelson. >> and i'm paula faris. we're going to get to the president and the latest with the women, plural, in the petraeus scandal straight ahead. also, we're going to hear from mitt romney for the first time since his election. what he is saying about obama campaign tactics raising a couple eyebrows. >>> then an inspiring story, the young lady who ran a long, a really, really long way. mostly barefoot on top of that. why she did it coming up. >> she is going to need a pedicure. >> ooh, man, bunnion city. >>> are you hungry this mor
defeated the president. mr. obama won the woman vote, blacks and asians. but it was the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of latinos voted for the president. that was the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, and nevada. other states were impacted as well. romney took white males and independents by significant margins. but when you bunch it all up together, when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year. american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35%. so it's clear that left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama, big spending on federal programs did. that's the key. because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power. no question about it. once a week voted for romney 59, 39, the problem is church going is on the decline in this country. here is is an example. despite the president's incense tense that provide birth control and after pills. catholics supported obama 50% to
, where a pretty fiery president obama ready to take off the gloves, if the republicans want to fight. the president clearly stating two key demands during his first news conference, ever since winning re-election. the first on taxes and the fiscal cliff. >> but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian is in washington, d.c., this morning. le
of the key states. even if we want it turns out the electoral vote count would've gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio and recall back in 2004, when john kerry lost to george bush, he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but perhaps the people could fit in the ohio state stadium i'd be president today. so was a very narrow but to read. i do think there are some reasons that are almost technical to some of you understand well. these folks in silicon valley who are good at social media and the democrat side were quite affect this. if you look at the numbers after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expect it and i would say even better than they expected based on their polling and sampling. so you know, they did a better job than we did in getting voters to the polls. and if i got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio still came within two points. the technology included the so-called orca system. many of you have read about that in the last couple of days, which was the republican get out the vote technology to
of votes. [applause] millions of women's votes that it took to reelect president barack obama. [applause] millions of women's votes that helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time a parliamentary body would have a party who had a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. we said yesterday, we did not have majority but we have the gavel. excuse me -- but we do not have the gavel. [laughter] we have something more important -- we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrates that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters -- when i came to congress 25 years ago there were 23 members of congress who were women out of 445. just think of that. 12 democrats, 11 republicans,
president obama defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was criticized for her remarks immediately following this attack. she is reportedly in contention to succeed hillary clinton as our secretary of state, take a listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. jenna: senator john cornyn of texas what's elected to be the senate's minority whip, a bit of a promotion if you will. thanks to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna, good to be with you. jenna: your reaction on what the president had to say yesterday in. >> i thought it was an overreaction to say the least. congress has a constitutional responsibility under our system of checks and balances to consider any nominations to an executive branch position, like secretary of state. the president knows that. i us
is still at it. the middle east is still a hot spot. thomas friedman writes today that for obama second term, i fear that it could be the full nightmare. all of them at once, the whole middle east corrupting in one giant sound and light show of civil war. states classing and refugees dislocating is the keystone of the entire region. syria, and the disorder spills across the neighborhood. joining us again, and fbi supervisory agent. you see that as late? >> what is happening in syria, you have to look at it from a few different perspectives. first you have the syrian people who want freedom from bashar al-assad's regime. then you have regional conflict that is going on. this is between iran and turkey. turkey is supporting the iranian people and iran is supporting the regime. you also have to look at it on a different level. where you have russia and china also involved on global levels with the syrian conflict. it is becoming a war of shadows and a war of different phones. the problem with that is that syria is a multicultural society. you have the christians and shiites and sunnis so i
states and africa afghanistan have begun negotiations on the status of forces agreement, or sofa, as required by the strategic partnership agreement that president obama and karzai signed in may. it will provide support for troops deployed after 2014. i would be interested in your thoughts on the importance of sofa to signal to the alabama and afghanistan's neighbors that the partnership will be -- to the taliban and neighbors that it will be a sign to stability and what you see as the u.s. redlines in sofa negotiations. we now call upon senator mccain. >> thank you, mr. chairman. let me thank our distinguished witness for his many years of impressive service in uniform. let me start by saying a word about general john allen, our commander in afghanistan. we had expected him to testify today on his confirmation to be supreme allied commander. while the committee await the conclusion of the inspector general investigation, i continue to believe that general allen is one of our best military leaders and i continue to have confidence in his ability to lead the war in afghanistan as
. nearly 30% of rhode island's residents were directly affected by this storm. president obama granted governor chafee's request for a federal disaster declaration in four of ourte's five counties. more than 130 rhode islanders lost power, and eight cities and towns were forced to implement evacuations. the whole state will be affected by the as of yet unknown millions in damage and lost business. but rhode island is resilient. some businesses hit hard by sandy and the subsequent nor'easter have already reopened. others are working hard to reopen soon. here we can see the atlantic avenue from the sky, and the owners of paddy's beach restaurant here as well as their neighbors all along the beach are determined to reopen for the summer tourist season. i remember walking through this little notch here with the owners of paddy's and looking at this scene of devastation beside and the owner saying that's not so bad. we can rebuild. we'll be back on our feet in no time. and they already had friends and volunteers on site with hammers and shovels and saws cleaning up and getting things put ri
public response. here's what president obama had to say. this is his press conference in the white house. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interest in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. host: president obama at a press conference. yesterday the ambassador he was talking about is susan rice, ambassador to the u.n. here's an image of her in the "washington times." and a quote from her. the best information and best assessment we have today is that in f
states senate in 2010. at the time, president obama made what i thought was a perfectly sensible observation. he said in 2010, with the economy growing so slowly, with economic growth down around 3%, which was producing high unemployment because the economy wasn't growing fast enough, he said, it makes no sense to raise taxes during that kind of pro jill economic recovery. -- fragile economic recovery. which makes me wonder what has changed between now and 2010 except for the fact that economic growth is even slower, the economy is even worse today than it was in 2010. president obama has said, contrasted -- contrasted with what he said in 2010, he said, raising taxes will help som sole our long-term debt problems. he says raising taxes will help us solve our long-term debt problems. but it's hard to take that argument seriously if you look at it closely. first, according to the president's own treasury department, tax increases he's advocating would generate about $85 billion a year in new net revenue. these tax increases would generate about $85 billion in new net revenue. by c
